This book reminds me of: The hover scooters and buses reminded me of Back to the Future, but the rest of the story felt unique.
Spin the Golden Light Bulb is a sci-fi novel written by Jackie Yeager. It’s geared towards pre-teens and older. The story is set late into the 21st century and is about a girl named Kia Krumpet who loves to dream up inventions and is doing her best to avoid being forced to study and work with one subject for the rest of her life.
Kia is a creative young girl from New York state who wants to go to PIPS, a renowned school for the world’s smartest and most inventive kids. She might have passed the Piedmont challenge, but she and her four teammates will have to compete with 245 other students from across the nation, and overcome unforeseen setbacks, before their team can move on, compete in the internationals, and have a chance to go to PIPS.
I loved the book. I noticed no errors in spelling, punctuation, or grammar. The pace was great throughout the entire book. I recommend this book to people who like science fiction.
It’s the year 2071 and eleven year-old Kia Krumpet is determined to build her 67 inventions, but she won’t have the opportunity to unless she earns a spot at PIPS, the Piedmont Inventor’s Prep School. Kia, who has trouble making friends at school, has dreamed of winning the Piedmont Challenge and attending PIPS ever since she learned that her Grandma Kitty won the very first Piedmont Challenge. After she and four of her classmates are selected to compete for a spot at PIPS, they travel by aero-bus to Camp Piedmont to solve a task against forty-nine other state teams to earn their place at the best inventor’s school in the country.
